Statement regarding the processing of biometric data
At Cowick CE Primary School we do not store or process any form of biometric data, such as fingerprints or retina scans.
The Governing Board and Data Protection Officer (DPO) will review this statement at least annually and the next scheduled review date for this statement is October 2024.
If our school does decide to store or process biometric data, a policy will be implemented for the processing of such data, which would be made available on the school website. Any changes made to the school’s position on the processing of biometric data will be clearly communicated to all staff, parents and pupils.
If you have any questions about this statement, please contact the DPO.
